09 Aug Iconic Palm Beach Museums in Your Backyard
Forté’s enviable South Flagler Drive location places residents right in the heart of the Palm Beaches. The area, also renowned as Florida’s Cultural Capital® includes The Norton Museum of Art, located within walking distance from Forté.
A STORIED COLLECTION
The Norton Museum features one of the largest collections of art in the state, boasting more than 8,200 permanent works in five departments: European, American, Chinese, Contemporary and Photography. No matter your interests, this Palm Beach museum has something for everyone to appreciate and feel inspired by.
One of the most beloved pieces of art inside The Norton is the Persian Sea Life Ceiling (2003), an installation commissioned by Dale Chihuly. This iconic display is made up of over 600 individual pieces of glass and took nearly three days to install.
COMMUNITY IN MIND
Since its founding in 1941, The Norton Museum has been committed to continually serving and bettering the Palm Beach arts community. In fact, the museum underwent impressive updates in 2019, including the addition of 12,000 square feet of gallery space, classroom expansions, a new outdoor sculpture garden and lawn for live music programming, 210-seat indoor auditorium, restaurant and more.
The Norton’s outdoor sculpture garden, designed as an extension of the traditional indoor gallery space, features works by Keith Haring, Antony Gormley, Jenny Holzer, Fernand Léger, and other celebrated artists from around the globe.
Open during Museum hours, The Restaurant at The Norton offers light, modern-American fare with nods to coastal influence. Dine either indoors or outside between lush, tropical foliage. Alongside the Restaurant’s fresh dishes, guests can also enjoy seasonal craft cocktails, wine and champagne.
NEVER A DULL MOMENT
Living in such close proximity makes it effortless to take advantage of The Norton’s impressive array of community programming, which includes Art After Dark: a well-balanced mix of arts and live entertainment every Friday night. Other in-person and online programming includes film screenings, fitness classes, art workshops, book discussions, live concerts, and more.
